KCRA Sacramento 27 July, 2021 - 12:47pm

The recent spike in COVID-19 cases in California and across the country from the highly infectious delta variant “is an alarming new factor that we must consider as we look to maintain the health and well-being of students, employees and visitors to our campuses this fall," CSU Chancellor Joseph I. Castro said.

The recent spike in COVID-19 cases in California and across the country from the highly infectious delta variant “is an alarming new factor that we must consider as we look to maintain the health and well-being of students, employees and visitors to our campuses this fall," CSU Chancellor Joseph I. Castro said.

Students and staff will be required to be vaccinated against COVID-19 before accessing any California State University campus facilities, the nation’s biggest four-year college system said on Tuesday.

The CSU system previously said it was planning to require vaccinations and that a formal mandate would depend on when the Food and Drug Administration gives full authorization to the COVID-19 vaccine.

But the recent spike in COVID-19 cases in California and across the country from the highly infectious delta variant “is an alarming new factor that we must consider as we look to maintain the health and well-being of students, employees and visitors to our campuses this fall," CSU Chancellor Joseph I. Castro said in a release.

The announcement cited "evolving circumstances" in saying that it wouldn't wait for further FDA action. All students and staff must certify they have been vaccinated by Sept. 30.

Several CSU campuses, including Sacramento State, allow people to be vaccinated on campus.

Castro urged students and staff to get vaccinated “as soon as possible.”

“For students who plan to continue their studies but do not wish to come to campus during the fall, it is expected that most campuses will have a more expansive offering of virtual courses as compared to before the pandemic, though resource limitations do not allow for a campus' or even a program's full offerings to be made available virtually,” the university said.

The system will allow people to seek medical and religious exemptions.

The University of California system has also announced that it will require COVID-19 vaccinations with few exemptions this fall.

Hillsong Founder Reassures Congregation It's Fine Not to Get Vaccinated After Member Dies of Covid

Jezebel 27 July, 2021 - 09:00am

After announcing the death of a church member who refused the covid vaccine and later died from the virus, Hillsong founder Brian Houston told CNN that he still considers vaccination a “personal decision” for other members of the congregation.

Houston has reportedly since deleted the original social media post where he eulogized the life of 34-year-old Stephen Harmon, who attended the global church’s Los Angeles location. Even after Harmon was hospitalized with the virus, he insisted he wasn’t “in a rush to get it.” (It was likely not an option for Harmon anyway; by the time patients are hospitalized it’s usually too late for them to get vaccinated.

“Stephen was just a young man in his early 30s,” Houston reportedly wrote. “He was one of the most generous people I know and he had so much in front of him. ... He will be missed by so many.”

They prey on the weak and try to convert by bringing people down so low that they become desperate. They were told by their church to do this to me and to try to get me convert and believe..  They probably see COVID as a recruitment opportunity.
